Dutch ag sector inspires urban farming in Singapore

During the 3rd annual Indoor AG Con Asia on January 16 – 17 in Singapore, the Netherlands highlighted its strengths in modern indoor agriculture. Concepts in sustainable, smart indoor farming from the Urban Farming Partners attracted visitors’ attention. Its flagship, the 3D printed scale model of the 101 Experience Tower, was an eye catcher. Especially the aspects of production close to the consumer, using high-yield technologies and an integrated food chain approach that increases food security contrast many current practices.





During a presentation on what Asia’s indoor agriculture industry can learn from Holland’s approach, Nienke Gelderloos highlighted the Dutch way of collaboration with clusters and cooperatives, multidisciplinary problem solving and smart solutions around water. Nienke is policy advisor agriculture at the Netherlands embassy in Singapore as well as liaison manager for Urban Farming Partners.
